Comment on Whittling away at sacred sites protection by Penangke.

Mr Scambury understands that the proposed removal of this tree is acceptable to custodians but Mr Scambury and AAPA are not consulting with senior custodians.
And what is the Arrernte council thinking.
They were fined for damaging this site now it seems its open slather.

Whittling away at sacred sites protection
Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority prosecuted an organisation 10 years ago for damage to this site while trying to put in a bike path.
Now it seems AAPA think its OK to do further damage to this site against custodians’ wishes.
AAPA called Doris Stuart as one of their main witnesses in that court case, now they avoid talking to her. AAPA seem to have no ethics and are clearly not about protecting Aboriginal areas but rather about trying to find ways around custodians to allow damage to their sites.
Development at any cost.
And while we are on the subject of cost $800,000+ seems a ridiculous amount of taxpayers money to pay for a couple of hundred yards of bike path, when there is a perfectly good bike path running parrallel a hundred yards away. How much of that cash will get into the hands of the gammon custodians?

Lightshows: nature can do it so much better
Wouldn’t it be great if the government could invest $2 million a year on a local festival instead of supporting a Sydney company to import a festival. $2 million into the local economy supporting artists, creatives, trades, all the school kids could get involved etc etc Awesome, but nah, we’ll send the money to Sydney. Pathetic!


Story Wall, buffel and Jacinta
Thanks Alex for a bit of history and the truth about buffel. It is ravaging our natural landscape.

It would be interesting to know the sales figures for alcohol from all the outlets collectively while the coppers were there compared to when they weren’t. How much less grog was sold?
Or was it the same just more sold to the black marketeers for on selling.
Basically to much grog is being drunk we need to lower that, which means financial losses to the sellers, pubs won’t be happy.
I think perhaps we need to get rid of a few licences. Take away should perhaps only be sold from the hotels that already have bottlos. That’d be the Gap and Todd Tavern. Concentrate the outlets and save police time.
Also if the coppers are noticing Joe Blogs buying up big on the cheap plonk every other day, they might get an idea where to look for the black market.


New attraction while we can’t look after the ones we have?
And as for the national indigenous cultural centre, what a joke when we have no respect or care for the very many cultural / sacred sites within our town.


Spread renewables, government asked
Brunswick council had a scheme 30 years ago. You could round up your power bill or just pay any amount extra and it would go to renewable energy infrastructure.
What you payed was tallied and the value of the renewable energy produced by your investment was deducted from your future bills.
